not really - a few extra metres from Front is going to help, but not make *that* massive of a difference.The art of poaching someone else's property is on display.
The elevation change is still material, but to make it a bit more gradual, they need the City to narrow Front Street and cede the land to the park to make that happen.
If the City says 'no' you're back to the old elevation change.
removing the parking decks drops the elevation significantly and is the primary driver of the better grade relationships.
Has there been any mention of where the parking is going now? Or is this going to be a 0-parking project? A project of this scale is probably going to struggle with true 0-parking.. even if the supply is very small.
